Forthcoming Acts for the Showcase Nights (on our third Thursdays) in 2013 are:-
BARLOW CREE on NOVEMBER 21st
Super-soulful duo from Cardiff. I’m surprised that they are returning to Burnham after the “Baptism of Fire” we gave them at this year’s Folkfest, making them endure venues such as the Waterfront and Victoria Inn, where they had to battle against the inevitable consequences of audiences with their fair share of cider on-board! Hopefully we can repay them with the usual respect given by the reasonably attentive and warm audience at the Ritz. Thanks for coming back!
SOMERSET PADDIES on DECEMBER 19th (Members Only, Limited Tickets)
Unique blend of local and Irish songs. Great Fun.
THE DRYSTONES on JANUARY 16th
The most exciting young folk duo in the South West.
THE CHERRIES on FEBRUARY 20th
It don’t mean a thing if you ain’t got that cowgirl swing. Now a trio with a brand new set.
UNION JILL on MARCH 20th
WOLFSCOTE on APRIL 17th
A Murder of Rooks with added member Cathy Lesurf. Pure dark folk played with style and humour.
DOORS OPEN AT 8.00pm and there will be an Open Mic set between 8.30pm and 9.45pm before the guest band/act comes on at about 10.00pm.
